The garden at Wychwood, at the foot of the Great Western Tiers in northern Tasmania, is one of the world's most magical places. Wychwood combines Scandinavian design sensibilities with temperate-climate, country-garden charm. And to top it off, the idyllic Mole Creek, which is home to brown trout and a platypus, runs through the back of the property.

Wychwood commemorates a garden over 22 years in the making, brought to life by a very special family who dreamt of the simple life in Tasmania. The book details the evolution of the garden from bare paddock to world-class attraction, with its iconic labyrinth, espaliered fruit trees, naturalistic planted beds and curved, clipped lawns.

It gives the reader insight into the techniques and secrets that make the design of this garden so successful, offering inspiration and encouragement at every turn, and for every level of gardener.

Peter Cooper's beautiful and haunting photography captures how the garden has transformed with the changing seasons and settled into its surroundings.

Peter Cooper was born in Farnborough in Hampshire, England. He began his career as an apprentice with the Royal Aircraft Establishment, which was based there. He now works as an insurance assessor dealing with air accidents.
